Recently the Mass Fiscal Alliance group mailed a large postcard critical of State Representative Jen Benson’s carbon emission tax proposal to constituents in her district. The postcard distorted the facts about the issue, and that is a problem. But a bigger problem is that the Mass Fiscal...
Grotonfest is a big event. All the groups in town have booths. The Boy Scouts make root beer; the Garden Club offers homemade pies, and the Rotary gives out hotdogs for a donation for the food pantry.      My church sells whoopie pies: you can mix and match your choice of flavors for filling...

I recently read about Groton School’s photovoltaic array and battery system being installed on Farmer’s Row in cooperation with GELD. (See article in July 19 issue)      I want to add that Groton School has two ice rinks which gobble up a lot of electricity. A similar private school in...
Excerpt from Al Gore’s commentary in the Sunday New York Times.   “This is our generation’s life-or-death challenge. It is Thermopylae, Agincourt, Trafalgar, Lexington and Concord, Dunkirk, Pearl Harbor, the Battle of the Bulge, Midway and Sept. 11.      "At moments of such crisis, the...
